NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Protected Gay Brother From Bullies

I was the type who would have been beat up a lot. It would have been humiliating. What would that have meant if I did survive it: Would I have done drugs? There are all sorts of things you can turn to because of self-hatred and loathing. But none of that was even a possibility, because I had this support around me. So, yeah, Roger is very much a hero figure for me.”

Michael Goodell, brother to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, recalling how Roger protected him from anti-gay bullies in school, in a Time magazine cover feature. Roger Goodell is a nominee for Time‘s Person of the Year 2013.
